BID ON BEEF – First of its Kind Livestock Auction Launched

On June 1, CK6 Consulting, along with strategic partners Texas Beefhouse, launched the first-of-its-kind auction platform for beef sales.

Bid on Beef is the vision of Chris Earl, owner of Reverse Rocking R Ranch and CK6 Consulting in New Mexico. Working with beef cattle producers across the nation. CK6 Consulting has conducted $150 million in sales through price discovery in auctions, and now the team is taking that same concept directly to the consumer.

“The vertically integrated beef supply food chain is not working for every cattleman and woman in America,” says Bid on Beef founder, Chris Earl. “We believe getting closer to the consumer retail dollar, through the free market, will directly impact ranchers’ bottomline and help create pathways of profitability back to the families we serve Bid on Beef will carefully vet sellers on our platform and our focus will be delivering consistently high-quality Angus and Wagyu beef to our customers. From pasture to plate, the beef will be born, raised, fed, harvested, packaged, and delivered by American cattle ranchers.”

Cattle auctions date back to the iconic American cattle drives along the Chisholm Trail, and Bid on Beef will invite shoppers to buy beef the cowboy way, through an honest bidding process where consumers have the are in the drivers’ seat to pick the ranch, pick the beef cuts, and pick the price.

”We’ll take care of the quality, and the buyers will take care of the price,” says Aaron DuVall, Bid on Beef partner and owner of Texas Beefhouse in Whitehouse, TX.

“Since we launched our platform on June 1, the excitement from producers and consumers alike has been tremendous,” adds Amanda Radke, Bid on Beef partner and rancher from Mitchell, S.D. “We are delighted to invite consumers to be part of the excitement of the auction tradition, and we are committed to bringing to the forefront the very best beef experience for participants on our platform. Consumer choice is a great thing, and we believe Bid on Beef will become a trusted source for American ranchers and consumers.”
